    That's a possibility but wouldn't the Gods either squash such a group themselves or send in their Scions to do it? Or just let the Titans nom on them the next time they show up and then warn people that becoming Titan-chow is a risk if you piss off your resident deities.

    Oh I'm totally open for suggestions. Hamartia sounds like a good name for the Pantheon Purview. I edited that in just now.

    I recall people were asking about a who's who list for some of the Demonic powers. I could write up Cain, and I like the idea of Sodom and Gomorrah as Terra Incognitas. I might just have to make a write-up of them.

    Oh wow! I...thank you! I never expected this to draw favorable comparisons with the canon work.

    That could be interesting. But a Scion of who? My thought is Lucifer but others might claim him as well.

    Relationships

    The Demonic pantheon is something of an odd duck among the pantheons of the World. There's the fact that they lost their Titanomachy, which sets them apart from all the others. Many pantheons that are pro-Titanomachy, like the Devas and the Theoi, look askance at them for that failure. Most of the Gods are too polite to say it out loud, but privately wonder what was lacking in the Demons that they could not overcome their Titans like so many others did. The result of their failure: the rise of a Primordial's cult into three world-spanning religions, does not help either....

    John Milton? I don't think so, though Lucifer might have been seeding poets and philosophers with dreams about how things went down in Heaven in an attempt to get his story out there.

    Thank you.

    Well, with Leviathan it was the association medieval demonology made with her as being the Demon of Envy. I needed some way to bridge the gap between primordial sea monster and demon who inspires envy, and it occurred to me that the process of becoming a God might have been that link. She started as just a big animal, and being infused with Demonic energies and the fall to Hell caused her to develop her own personality and legend, eventually becoming a Goddess.

    Behemoth was a bit harder. After all, what could motivate a slothful layabout like him? But I figured...

  • It is one of his aliases. From what I can find on Wikipedia, it seems that Aeshma Daeva was venerated in around the same areas and times, and was incorporated as Asmodeus by the ancient Israelites. Of course, I'm no religious scholar, so I might be totally wrong.

    Succubi and Incubi (•••••)

    Succubi are a race of demons descended from Lilith and the few angels of sexuality. They appear as beautiful women with bat wings, tails, and horns in their true form. Incubi are male demons descended from Semyaza and appear much the same as their female counterparts in their true form. Both types of demon are especially attuned to desire, sensuality, and lust, and encourage those feelings wherever they go. A group of succubi or incubi followers can make for powerful social persuasion, but they are...

    Primordial: El

    The only Primordial of the Demonic pantheon is known by many names. The Demons know him as El, while in the World he is often addressed by other names, such as God, The Lord, Allah, Jehovah, and Yahweh just to name a few. El was the creator of all things in the primordial past, crafting the mortal universe as one shapes clay over the course of six days. To maintain his creation, he created the race of angels and ordered them in a strict hierarchy. Having set the Heavens and the World into motion, he believed that all would unfold according to his plans. The humans were...

    Religion: The Satanisms

    El and his followers have had much of the World under their control, directly or indirectly, for the last couple of millennia. It was always an uphill struggle for the Demonic pantheon to attract and protect followers, even in the ancient World, but the last two millennia have been brutal towards them. It was not uncommon in Europe for anyone who disagreed with Christianity to be labeled a devil-worshiper, and from there to have their property and their lives become forfeit. It was also a common practice for religious authorities to conflate other deities with...

    Cosmology

    The cosmology of the Demonic pantheon is at once simple and complex, incorporating many Terra Incognita within it's branching structure. Above all things shines Heaven. Heaven is the inexpressibly radiant and beautiful Overworld, whose streets are paved in gold, and whose gates shine in pearlescent magnificence. In this paradise dwells the Angels, Titans of great might and near single-minded devotion to their maker. It is within Heaven that El dwells, shining with presence and power enough to melt the mind and flesh of those who approach without leave. It was from Heaven...

    Beelzebub, God of Gluttony and Consumption
    Aliases: The Lord of the Flies, The Traitor Prince, The Consumer, The Imprisoned Prince, The Disfigured One, Prince of the Air

    Beelzebub is a study of contrasts. There was a time when he was a mighty commander among the Hosts of Heaven. Nowhere near the top ranks, but still highly placed and respected. When Lucifer was looking for recruits Beelzebub was a canny negotiator. If he would leave the comfort and security of his grand villa for Lucifer he insisted that he be given as high or higher a place in the new order Lucifer would create....

    Asmodeus, God of Wrath and Courage
    Aliases: Aeshma Daeva, Asmodai, Ashmedai, Ashima, The First Son, The Avenger, The Wrathful Lord, The Champion of Humanity

    Asmodeus is unique among the Demonic pantheon in that he did not begin as an angel or some other creation of El. His origins, in part, lie with humanity. When Adam was wed to Lilith, he cheated on her with Naamah, the Angel of Prostitution, and Asmodeus was the result. In later times Asmodeus would absorb the mantle of a Heroic Scion of the succubus Agrat bat Mahlat and King David, leading to no end of confusion for mortal...

    Semyaza, God of Lust and Depravity
    Aliases: Samyaza, Shemhazai, Shemyaza, Semiazaz, The Lord of Harems, The Prince of Pleasure, The God of Sex, The Lord of Incubi, The Doom of the Grigori, The Prince of Depravity, The Pimp of Hell

    Semyaza takes a great pride in his pedigree. He was created as one of the Grigori, the Watchers created by El to observe and report on humanity. Like all of El's forces, there was a strict regimentation. Semyaza stood at the pinnacle of the Grigori hierarchy, a position he felt was his by right of being a superior being, not merely a result of being...

    Azazel, God of Secrets and Wisdom
    Aliases: Za-za-e'il, Azazil, Iblis, The Great Unclean Bird, The Scapegoat, The Teacher of Truths, The Sage of Hell, The Corruptor, The Whisperer, The Lord of Dis, The Spymaster of Hell

    Azazel, like many of the senior members of the Demonic pantheon, got his start as an angel. Unlike most of the others though, Azazel came into being after the Great Rebellion. In the aftermath of the Rebellion there was much confusion as to why a third of the Hosts had rebelled for one measly mortal species. El's solution to the problem was to create the Grigori,...

    Behemoth, God of Sloth, Sleep, and Dreams
    Aliases: Belphegor, Juggernaut, The Second Beast of Revelation, The Lord of Dreams, The Disputer, The Lord of Indulgence, Magog, The False Prophet

    Behemoth was created at the same time as Leviathan. Where she was the progenitor of sea creatures, Behemoth was the prototype for land-dwelling creatures. The colossal beast, capable of taking the form of any of the great beasts of the land, was always self-indulgent. Not having much in the way of intellect, it was content to feed and rut and sleep, paying no heed to the brewing rebellion...

    Leviathan and her male counterpart Behemoth share a distinction with Lilith among the Demonic pantheon in that none of the three started as angels. They were creations of El though. Leviathan was created as the prototype for the great beasts of the sea, a primeval monster who gave birth to the whales, the tannim, and the other creatures of the deeps. In her...

    Astaroth, Goddess of Judgment, Order, and Endings
    Aliases: The Demonic Inquisitor, The Princess of Judgment, He Who Whispers Chain, The Executioner of Hell, Minister of Justice, Judge of the Damned

    Astaroth would thank you kindly not to get her mixed up with Astarte or Ishtar. She's friendly with both, and hates that the modern world has so badly conflated her with them. In fact, misunderstanding is a common trait when it comes to Hell's chief of law enforcement. Strangely, it was the imagination of humanity that first drew her to Lucifer's cause, but it still causes no end...

    Apollyon, God of War and Destruction
    Aliases: The Angel of the Abyss, The Lord of Sheol, Minister of War, The Devourer, Abaddon, The Angel of the Pit, The General of Hell

    It's a truism that for every general there needs to be soldiers. And that's where Apollyon fit into the Great Rebellion. He wasn't the charismatic leader that Lucifer was, but when the Lightbringer needed someone to command his troops in battle, Apollyon was who he picked. Apollyon likes to think that it's because he was stronger than any Archangel. Truthfully, Lucifer had tried to recruit Michael or Uriel,...
